Why is Oxygen Therapy Important for the Digestive System?
Oxygen, classified as a “good free radical” is an important part of Oxy-Powder® because it attacks harmful substances in the body. Oxygen therapy is also quite safe; it does not demonstrate a potential for causing damage to normal cells even in high doses. The human body requires beneficial “oxygen radicals” to clean up the burdens forced upon it from typically Western lifestyle habits such as: eating unhealthful foods (fatty meats, sugar-heavy or salty snacks, excessive carbohydrates, etc.), abstaining from regular exercise, drinking coffee, colas, and alcohol and subsequently dehydrating from not drinking enough purified water, and not getting enough rest at night.
Repeated tests on Oxy-Powder® have determined its safety—up to forty capsules can be consumed in one day with no detrimental effects noted! Your physician or natural health care provider should always be consulted to help you regulate the dosage and frequency of use. However, Oxy-Powder® is non-toxic, beneficial for a variety of health concerns, and effective for helping you rid your digestive system of accumulated toxin-laden waste.
Effects of using Oxy-Powder® as a form of oxygen therapy vary from one person to the next. In most cases, using this powerful oxygen-based colon cleanser greatly promotes normal bowel function, aids in efficiency of nutrient assimilation, and enhances the body’s overall energy level.
What are the Effects of Taking Oxy-Powder®?
It must be noted that, while Oxy-Powder® does not cause diarrhea, it can liquefy fecal matter and sometimes this confuses people. Effects of oxygen therapy based colon cleansing may range from a somewhat loose stool to clear water because this process involves enhanced oxidation/oxygenation of waste matter but this is NOT the same as pathological diarrhea which is usually caused by a viral infection or reaction to a food allergen.
Germanium-132 has also been added to the oxygen therapy formula to improve the effectiveness of the oxygen release mechanism. Oxy-Powder® also encourages the production and growth of acidophilus and other beneficial bacteria. You see, after you purge unwanted waste from your intestinal system, your body can begin repairing weakened or damaged bowel tissue, improving blood quality, and eliminating harmful invading organisms with its natural defenses. Once the beneficial bacteria start repopulating your colon and other digestive systems, you can enjoy an immune system that is closer to achieving its full strength and vitality.
Oxygen – An Essential Element of Life
Without a doubt, oxygen is the most essential element for human existence. Through normal oxidation (the chemical union of an element with oxygen, such as what occurs during digestion, burning, or rusting), the universe maintains itself by breaking down and reconstructing itself over and over infinitely. The life-enhancing element O2 (two atoms of oxygen joined as one molecule) is a component of the very air we breathe; but how does this relate to oxygen therapy?
A sick or diseased body has a difficult time obtaining and utilizing oxygen simply from inhalation or even from an enclosed source such as a tank or purification system. In most cases, our bodies don’t have enough of the necessary carriers (minerals, vitamins, nutrients, blood factors, etc.) available from our poor food supply.
Because of this shortfall, the oxidation process in the body usually just gets by and certainly cannot provide enough power to help someone endure the pressures of modern life. Acute, chronic, and incurable diseases result in cellular oxygen deficiency and, in turn, oxygen deficiency can aggravate the internal conditions leading to disease. The necessity for preventative measures such as oxygen therapy becomes quite clear.
It has been said all disease starts in the colon. To stay healthy, we need supplementary methods of oxygen therapy for oxygenating the organs and oxidizing substances causing disease. If most disease begins as a result of diminished digestive function, oxygen levels should be increased directly within the digestive tract and surrounding organs. In other words, the entire intestinal tract must be cleansed so the body can begin to work normally again. Only with a smoothly operating and well-functioning body can optimal health be restored or achieved.
Free Radicals and Oxygen Therapy
Dr. Otto Warburg, the only person to win the Nobel Prize twice in medicine, discovered any cell deprived of 50% or more of its oxygen resources inevitably turned cancerous. As the ultimate cause of disease is cellular degeneration, maintaining living, healthy cells is imperative. Detoxifying the body and all its systems, organs, and cells by taking advantage of oxygen therapy is the most effective way of sustaining desirable health. It is simply crucial to enhance the oxidative/reductive mechanism or, as Dr. Warburg said, to literally ” . . . flood the body with oxygen.”
The following excerpts from an interview with Dr. George Freibott illustrate the relationship between free radicals and oxygen therapy.
“The free radical theory (a theory is an idea in the works, often accepted before being proven a fact) has been around since the ’30’s. Today many say all free radicals are harmful. That’s a half-truth. Oxygen radical chemistry is necessary for all metabolic exchanges in the body. All free radicals are waiting to unite with another oppositely charged element (radical). The negatively charged available oxygen bonds with the harmful free radicals to allow elimination. Some years back a group of us at a costume party all dressed in black with a long white rope connecting us at the waist. We were the “oxygen free radicals coming to clean up the place!” As the chemical attraction beckoned one of us, we untied the rope and the oxygen free radical (O1) was free to explore and bond . . . .
The blood also carries oxygen to each cell where it ‘burns up’. (oxidizes) the waste products, resulting in carbon dioxide which is carried out of the body via the blood stream through the lungs . . . .
Oxidation is defined as the ability of oxygen to combine with other substances to form water and gases. In the body, the process of oxidation occurs continuously. Without this process taking place, life would cease very quickly. We take on oxygen through our respiratory exchanges (breathing) and dispose of toxic wastes. Our blood has the function of the uptake of oxygen, its transport throughout the body, and the disposal of body toxins.”1
Advice About Antioxidants and Oxygen Colon Cleansing
We now know most people are deficient in their internal oxygen levels and also in their antioxidant consumption. Antioxidants protect key cell components by neutralizing the damaging effects of “free radicals,” natural byproducts of cell metabolism. Free radicals form whenever oxygen is metabolized or burned by the body. Free radicals travel through cells, disrupting the structure of other molecules and causing cellular damage. Such cell damage is believed to contribute to the aging process as well as a variety of health problems, so oxygen therapy is critical for maintaining optimal health.
One may choose to use an antioxidant supplement along with a good colon cleanser like Oxy-Powder® for a two-step approach to cleansing and oxygen therapy. The Editors highly recommend Megahydrate™ as it is one of the strongest antioxidant supplements available. Don’t use them at the exact same time however because the antioxidants would neutralize the oxygen released by Oxy-Powder® within the intestinal tract. Antioxidants should be taken either 2 hours before or after taking Oxy-Powder® for best results.
